Double Exposures in the Darkroom

Most people are aware that creating double-exposures in your camera can be fun and exciting! Creating double-exposures in the darkroom can be even more satisfying, since the creator has more control over what image is being created, even if you can’t see it until it’s developed! Here, I created a double exposure first by stacking my negatives in the carrier (top image). Then, for the middle image, since I wanted the tree texture to be less noticeable, I decided to expose the paper once for the desert image (with beautiful Jenny in it) then again with the tree texture, dodging the area where Jenny is located. I noticed that I didn’t have the enlarger set up properly for this print, so I adjusted it, and repeated the process for the final (bottom) image.

This post is part of a blog circle for the love of film! See what Bobbi-Jo of Love, Bee photography has in store for you this month by clicking here! :)

Camp Horno Homecoming

Welcome home, Derek! Vivian waited several months for Derek’s return from a MEU, and couldn’t have been happier on the day he got back! She was all smiles all afternoon, despite Derek taking longer than anticipated to get to Camp Horno from the ship. Finally, he arrived, and everything fell perfectly into place!

Film Friday – A Lifestyle Family Session

A couple weeks ago, I got to spend time with my friend, Amy, and her fun kiddos for an afternoon of playtime! They read, put together a puzzle, took some photos with a fun toy camera, and practiced spelling inside, and played with bubbles, rode a roller coaster, and kicked a ball around outside. Little brother B even showed off his counting skills by counting from 1 to 20, then backward from 20 to 1! Capturing these fun “anytime” moments at their home was such a blast!

Long Exposures

What set out to be a nighttime astrophotography adventure with the San Diego Shooting Group turned into a fun, nighttime long-exposure adventure when clouds foiled our plans. Luckily, our beautiful model was willing to sit still, out in the cold, for about 30 seconds at a time, so we got some fun long exposures with her after the sun went down!
